New firmware -
We have just released a new
firmware version for all our Rapid Prototyping controllers - CC18,
MS120, SL100 and MMi202. This upgrades them to dialect 23 (dialect
22 got missing in action, so we jumped from 21 to 23).
Dialect 23 introduces significant
enhancements in a number of areas:
* Serial communications, where
you can program exactly what gets sent and how received data is
processed. We call this User Programmable Protocol, as distinct
from ModBus Master, ModBus Slave or SPLatLink..
* Basic 8-bit binary arithmetic
(ADD, ADC, SUB, SBC)
* Additional floating point
* "Print" to RAM. This prepares
the ground for sending ASCII (or binary) commands to Xwire
peripherals. (Hint: Stand by for an upcoming data logger
As always, firmware upgrades are
free. You can download the upgrades (*.rfl files) here, (just select the directory for your board
and download the highest revison number) and learn how to
reFlash your boards here.
